Airedale appoints new Customer Services Manager

Global air conditioning manufacturer Airedale has strengthened its management team with the appointment of Patrick Cotton as Customer Services Manager. The appointment follows the recent promotion of Adam Yarrington, the previous holder of the post, to Product Development Director in December 2016.

Patrick joined Airedale in 2009 after having completed a BEng in Mechanical Engineering from Leeds University, where he graduated with First Class Honours. He originally started at Airedale as a design engineer in the Product Development team where he worked for 5 years, before acquiring the role of Research Team Leader in the Research division of the R&D team in 2014 which was dedicated to investigating new technologies and determining their potential for application in Airedale’s product ranges.

In his new role, Patrick’s remit includes responsibility for the Applications Engineering, Contracts, Sales Order Processing, Project Engineering and Drawing Office teams. He will also head up the design of customised units for complex projects.

Commenting on his new role, Patrick said:

“I am excited to become part of Airedale’s continuous commitment to both our customers and process improvement throughout the business.  We have a dedicated Customer Services team, which I am thrilled to now be a part of, and we plan to make further strides forwards in satisfying our client base.”

Patrick will commence his new role with immediate effect.
